A family house boasting beautifully landscaped gardens of approximately half an acre, rural views and scope for further extension



Ditchling with its beautiful views of the South Downs is a historic village playing host to a selection of local shops, cafés, a church and two public houses including The Bull, an award-winning gastro pub. The larger village of Hassocks, with its mainline train station is a short drive away and provides regular rail services to London and a more comprehensive array of shops and schooling for all ages. 

Believed to date back to the late 1920’s ‘Rushmere’ is a beautiful detached house built to a Tudor style. Having recently been the subject of a programme of updating and reconfiguration, this family house blends together character and period features such as open fireplaces with detailing synonymous with the ‘Arts & Crafts movement’ along with tasteful modern décor. Of particular note is the recently fitted bespoke hand made kitchen/breakfast room with marble worksurfaces and a breakfast bar. There are 4 sizable reception rooms on the ground floor including a conservatory with patio doors opening out onto the rear garden. There are 4 bedrooms accessed from the large landing on the first floor along with a bathroom and a separate w.c. The property is set back off the road with a sweeping driveway providing parking for several cars and access to the garage. The rear garden is of an excellent size and is predominantly laid to lawn with a raised terrace that adjoins the rear of the property. The garden is private with a selection of established trees and mature shrubs. Further to this is an attached brick and glass built greenhouse accessed from the garden room.
